Severe wildfires have taken lives, destroyed homes and businesses, and continue to threaten communities throughout our state. Eventually the smoke will clear and we can begin to assess the damage.
For now, we can confirm that several growers have been among those in the community impacted by the dual loss of home and livelihood.
The opportunity of legal cannabis is in ashes for many longtime California growers and their communities. Over the course of the last 18 months, these growers have spent their life savings getting permits and preparing for state licenses. Recovery will be especially difficult because cannabis is a dramatically under-insured crop, growers can’t get loans and won’t qualify for federal recovery funds.
For these reasons we have launched this wildfire recovery fund. 100% of donations will be used for fire disaster relief and recovery.
